CUNA tax advocacy webinar is Wednesday
More details of the joint Credit Union National Association (CUNA)/state credit union league "Don't Tax My Credit Union" campaign will be revealed during a free Wednesday, May 22 webinar.
CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney will host the webinar, which is scheduled for Wednesday, May 22 at 3:00 p.m. ET.
The national webinar on the credit union tax status will feature:
• A legislative briefing on the tax situation facing credit unions; and
• Valuable information on the tools CUNA and state leagues are providing to help credit unions join the tax status fight.
CUNA and affiliated state credit union leagues recently launched a large-scale, nationwide, grassroots-mobilization campaign urging America's 96 million credit union members to deliver a united message to the U.S. Congress: "Don't tax my credit union!"
The campaign is being launched at a time when the U.S. House and Senate have made broad-based tax reform a major priority. The initiative will urge lawmakers, as part of any final tax reform plan, to preserve the federal tax exemption credit unions receive as not-for-profit, member-owned cooperatives.
"It's rare that credit unions call upon their 96 million members to take action, but our members will be the best spokespeople we have, especially on an issue as vital to our future as this," Cheney said.
